Recently, I published my long await Best Foodie Film list here on the Multi Cultural Cooking Network Blog and on IMDB. On LinkedIN’s Movie addicts page there was lots of feedback. The Godfather and Godfather 3 have some fantastic foodie moments revolving around meatballs, sausage and gnocchi. Francis Ford Coppola is definitely a foodie. It creeps out with taking the time to do a cooking lesson by the character Clemenza and Michael Corleone in “The Godfather.” Back then we didn’t realize he would start Coppola Winery.
Foodie Moment: Clemenza tells Michael:
Come over here, kid, learn something. You never know, you may have to cook for 20 guys some day. You see, you start out with a little bit of oil, you fry some garlic, then you throw in some tomatoes, some tomato paste, you fry it, you make sure it doesn’t stick, you get it to a boil. You shove in all your sausage and your meatballs, add a little bit of wine, and a little bit of sugar — and that’s my trick.
